Lobster

Author: Guillaume Lecasble

Translator: Polly McLean   Cover illustration: David Smith  

'There was a Lobster-shaped hole in world literature which has now been filled by this remarkable work.'
Nick Lezard in The Guardian

Aboard the Titanic, Lobster watches Angelina devour his father, before being plucked out of the aquarium himself. Just as he is put in the boiling pot, the ship hits the iceberg and the pot is thrown to the floor. Lobster survives, with some changes: he finds himself sexually attracted not only to a human, but to the very human who ate his father. He gives her one life-changing orgasm before their tragic separation, following an ugly incident in one of the lifeboats.

Lobster will appeal to readers who like the unusual with a sprinkling of erotic in their fiction.
